Awesome dinner

We had dinner Friday and again on Sunday. Dinner was so good we had to return! Soft shell crab was awesome. I am a chef and a restaurant owner but the escarole and beans is better than mine. Pasta dishes were outstanding! Salads and appetizers were yummy. Then dessert and coffee... Bread... read more

Based upon reviews, I made an early dinner reservation on a Saturday evening. We ordered some drinks, appetizers and an entree. The appetizers were a bit slow getting to us, but they were very tasty. Unfortunately, we never got to enjoy our entrees. Our appetizer plates were removed after about 35 min and we awaited our entrees with anticipation. At... More

A pleasant surprise awaits you in Front Street restaurant. The restaurant is located in a basement on Commercial Street and would be very easy to pass by. The seating is tight but the food surpasses most of the places I've eaten in Provincetown. The specialties range from good old American to Italian, which is my choice. Depending on who you... More

We have been going to Front Street for years. While we stay in Provincetown for a week in June and September , we make it a point to dine at the restaurant twice a week. This is by far our favorite place. The food is excellent as is the service. The prices are reasonable and the selections are varied. I... More

We have been going to Front Street for years, and the quality has always been terrific. Our waitress, Jody, and the hostess, Cindy, were charming and helpful - even though we arrived without reservations this time. I can't think of anything on the menu that wasn't terrific. It consistently beats every other restaurant in town. Really wonderful, as always. The... More

Have gone to Provincetown for many many years, but don't often eat at Front Street. Because it's in a basement (though a really lovely one, feels like you could be in Italy) I don't tend to choose it, preferring sunshine and ocean views. However, craving italian brought me there one evening, and have to say the service was some of... More

Usually every September we would go to Front Street for Dinner but this year we could not but did order our desert from Front Street. The dessert was Pear-Cranberry Bread Pudding with a Bourbon whipped cream. The Whipped Cream was wonderful and up to the standard that we have always had at Front Street but the Bread pudding was not.... More
